Your journey in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon will take you across the beautiful islands of the Alola region, where you’ll encounter newly discovered Pokémon, as well as Pokémon that have taken on a new Alolan style. You may even encounter powerful Legendary Pokémon and other special Pokémon, such as the mysterious guardian deities. Keep track of all the Pokémon you’ve seen and caught with the new Rotom Pokédex.
Some of the Pokémon you’ll train and battle with can learn powerful new Z-Moves,—moves so strong they can be used only once in battle. There are Z-Moves for every different type, as well as exclusive Z-Moves for certain Pokémon, including Eevee and Pikachu. Try them out in battle to see what these awesome moves can do!
Around every corner, your battling skills will be tested by tough Trainers! Epic battles are in store for you against Team Skull, a nefarious group of ruffians attempting to steal Pokémon, and you’ll also face the kahunas, the tough leaders of each island. And if you’re strong enough, you may reach the Battle Tree, a place where the most accomplished Trainers go to battle each other.
The new Pokémon Refresh feature can keep your Pokémon in top shape after all that battling. Take care of your Pokémon by curing any status conditions like poisoning and paralysis. Plus, the more affectionate your Pokémon become toward you, the better they’ll perform in battle. Take good care of your Pokémon with Pokémon Refresh, and they’ll be great allies on your adventure!
Your Pokémon can also enjoy a new experience known as Poké Pelago, a place for them to visit when they’ve been placed in PC Boxes. Poké Pelago is a group of islands where your Pokémon can explore, play, and do other fun activities. As your Pokémon play there, they might get stronger or obtain items for you.
Using Pokémon Bank, you'll be able to transfer Pokémon you've caught in the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console versions of Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue, and Pokémon Yellow into your copy of Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon. Pokémon from Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, and Pokémon Y can also be brought into Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon in the same way.
Look forward to all the places to explore, things to do, and Pokémon to discover in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon!
